The Elder Scrolls is an action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studio. Skyrim, Morrowind, and Oblivion won Game of the Year awards and sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
The fictional universe of The Elder Scrolls takes place on the continent of Tamriel, with a setting of a mixed early pre-medieval real-world elements. Often is revolving around a mighty Roman Empire with minimal technological capabilities. High fantasy elements are used, widespread magic, travel between parallel worlds, and mythological creatures such as dragons are seen.
So, in Skyrim, everyone loves something at the game. One example is Shirley Curry, the “Skyrim Grandma” who started making videos in her 80s and has almost half a million Youtube subscribers.
How this Skyrim Grandma ended up in the new Elder Scrolls 6?
After a fan petition with 50,000 signatures, she’s been added into the project.
The woman is thrilled to participate in the project, and to find out that somebody will be playing with her character in the future game Elder Scrolls 6.
Moreover, Bethesda will use photogrammetry to scan 3D environments and people to make their game more realistic, than using an artist to construct all the scenes. Of course, not everything will be scanned, because you can’t find dragons and spaceships in real life.
Bethesda declared that they would use photogrammetry to scan all the real-world assets and push the future tech in gaming on levels they haven’t done before. The same technique is used in Unreal Engine 4, with some impressive effect, but the fans are doubting that Bethesda will have the ability to keep up the graphical fidelity.
Also, the question about better in-game textures is on the minds of fans. Skyrim didn’t look bad when it was released, but The Elder Scrolls: Blades, is in disadvantage.
Finally, Todd Howard from Bethesda said at E3 to the fans to be patient about the new game. So maybe a little disappointing and no reassurance at all, but we will see what is coming with this new project.
